GIANT ANT is looking for a dynamic, organized and clever Senior Producer to join our team. They’ll be tasked with both converting client inquiries into active projects and leading animation projects through our process to successful videos. We make short, high quality videos using live-action and animation (and a mix of the two) for a growing list of forward-thinking local and international clients.
ABOUT THE ROLE:
Our Senior Producer will be responsible for intake—converting leads into active studio projects. They’ll connect with potential clients to gather needs, determine basic project specs, discuss our process and pricing and, ultimately, determine the fit to work together. From there they’ll work to set expectations and scope, produce project documentation and get the project properly set up and kicked off. It’s a sales role without the swagger; more about finding the proper fit than pressing something that doesn’t work.
The Senior Producer is also our primary point of contact on a handful of animation client projects at any given time. Tasked with leading clients through our animated video process—from concept development to approval cut—this person is accountable for keeping clients informed and comfortable with their project progress, responsive and timely on their feedback and approvals, and ultimately happy with their Giant Ant experience. It is truly a key role in our delivery of great videos.
The successful Senior Producer leads with grace—knowing when to push, when to pull and when to reassure. They can confidently represent Giant Ant, leading clients and driving projects ahead solo, but are also adept at calling for help and looping-in teammates at the right time to keep it all on track and use time wisely. They are comfortable talking numbers and wrangling meetings but also able to jump into a creative discussion when prompted. They are a juggler of many tasks, always keenly aware that they represent the voice and face of Giant Ant for a list of clients dear to us.
Requirements of the role include: meticulously organized, intensely detail-oriented, delightfully self-aware, and blessed with the ability to communicate clearly and concisely with people of all stripes. A deep understanding of the animation craft and process is an essential element to remaining confidently in the lead both internally and externally.
This is a full-time position starting immediately and working in our Vancouver Chinatown studio. Compensation is fair (based on the experience you bring) and includes benefits.
ABOUT GIANT ANT:
We’re a small (14 people) creative studio delivering high-touch animation and live-action videos to a very select group of clients. Our team is young and talented, creative and innovative, and in the process of building a studio that gets noticed. We work hard (sometimes long), put love in all of our work and value our open, friendly and creative studio culture.
